**The grapes destined for the Riserva di Fizzano are carefully selected at the optimum moment of the vintage and the vinification of this riserva only happens in exceptional years. After the traditional fermentation the wine is matured in French oak barrels for over two years, then bottled and refined for almost a year before being released.**

James Suckling 93 Points
This is a tight and fruity Chianti Classico with dried cherry and walnut aromas and flavors. Some tile and spice too. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Give it a year to open up.

Wine Spectator 92 Points
($38) Powerful and brooding, with black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit shaded by tasty oak. Earth, mineral and spice flavors ride out through the lingering finish as the tannins build. Impressive, even though this doesn't shout Chianti Classico. Best from 2018 through 2028.

Wine Enthusiast 91 Points
($38) Made of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot, this elegant, structured wine opens with spicy red berry and underbrush notes with a hint of toast. The firm palate offers dried black cherry, clove and mocha flavors, framed by assertive but polished tannins. Drink 2018–2025.

Tasting Notes
Color: Intense ruby red
Nose: Intense with hints of wild berries and well-balanced spice
Palate: Warm with ripe red fruit aromas and a long finish.

Food Pairings
Compliments red meat dishes, roasts, game and aged cheeses

The Winery
When the late Italo Zingarelli, a former boxer and film producer, bought Rocca delle Macìe in Tuscany's Chianti Classico district back in 1973, he embarked on a new career as one of Tuscany's more unlikely wine producers.

It was certainly not intended to be a hobby... it was a vocation, a desire to return to the soil." Zingarelli, who passed away in the spring of 2000, was always quick to point out.

Working closely with his son Sergio, Zingarelli set about restoring the property that Sergio together with his wife Daniela, who plays an active role in the day-to-day management of the estate, and their two children now call home. Then a tumbled down 14th-century farmstead near the village of Castellina in Chianti, it was surrounded by acres of neglected vines. Vineyards were replanted from scratch; further property, was acquired, and a state-of-the-art cellar built and installed with the latest winemaking equipment. The Zingarellis left nothing to chance in their quest to create a stellar Tuscan wine estate.

Organic fertilization, careful pruning, the introduction of small oak barrels for aging and harvesting by hand are just some of the practices Sergio and his father instituted at the estate. Rocca is an active member of the Chianti Classico growers' consortium, which takes the black rooster as its symbol.
